In a circular letter to the receivers of the same date, Robert Morris had instructed them “to endorse a Copy” of the receipts for every sum received “on the back of the Warrant so that when the whole is discharged you may deliver up the said Warrant then taking back your several loose Receipts” (Morris to H, April 15, 1782).
The same document contains receipts from Thomas Tillotson, who succeeded H as receiver. Tillotson’s receipts were dated from December 2, 1782, to June 9, 1784.
